    posted a message on Disable WYSIWYG or make Markdown default

    I don't really like WYSIWYG editors. So far, the only thing that really annoys me about this new site look is all the markdown formatting I lost in my addon changelogs, because everything was retroactively forced out of markdown, and the default WYSIWYG selection when uploading a new file.

     

    May we have an option for a default editor setting sitewide?

    posted a message on Stop changing our code.

    I think this new file handling has a conceptual error.

     

    What it does:

    gets upload, unzip, read, rezip, host

     

    What it should do:

    gets upload, copies it

    copy1: unzip, read, delete

    copy2: host

     

    I'm sure it's much more complicated, but am I anywhere close to what curse's addon upload is doing?

    posted a message on file checksums and timestamps changed after upload to curseforge

    Could you provide an option to disable this? One of my projects is localized, but it has zero translations in it because it relies solely on Blizzard's global strings. I don't foresee myself updating that particular project since I consider it feature complete, but I don't want you going around my files and changing them to your liking. If you could scan files without changing them, that would be great.

    Updated for Legion. Remember to go to http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/decliner/tickets to report bugs, issues, and suggestions. I can't fix what I haven't found.

    Thank you to everyone who has helped me with this addon while I was on random low characters on a few realms. I appreciate everyone's patience of me asking in trade, general, and lfg for requests. I hope my addon continues to be an effective firewall for those that want or need it.

    Since this is simply an update post in a relevant thread, given that a major patch occurred since the start of this thread, this is not a necro.

    This isn't really gold spam, but what they are advertising, how the ad looks, and the fact that different low level characters are doing it is dubious:

    While leveling a guildless toon, I've noticed that unsolicited invites and duel requests are common. Yea, there's options to block guilds and trades, and addons to block duels, but something in me sparked some interest in coding, as I've done in the past for Javascript and minor Batch files for personal use. After finding several abandoned addons that used to do what I wanted to do, my mind was set.

    Create an addon that blocks player interactions while letting through players you want.

    Learning Lua and the WoW API was a rewarding process, developing Decliner over the past year. Here's part of my addon's description page:

    automatically declines:
    • duel requests
    • pet-battle duel requests
    • group invites
    • guild invites
    • guild petitions
    • trade requests
    • channel invites

    from players when:
    • you haven't recently whispered them
    • they aren't in your party or raid
    • they aren't in your guild
    • they aren't on your friends list
    • they aren't a battle.net friend

    Features

    • Blocks sounds and other ui messages
    • All the clicks, event sounds, and chat/info text that occurs from interactions are silenced when an action is blocked. If you disabled notifications, you wouldn't know if anything was blocked at all.


    • Spam prevention
    • You will be notified only once within a certain time if a player is repeatedly sending you blocked invites or requests. The more they send, the longer that specific notification is hidden.


    • Forgetting players you whispered
    • After some time, players that were allowed because you whispered them will be forgotten.


    • Opening group invites when you need them
    • Sometimes you need an invite to a world boss group or to get a portal from someone nearby. When you say "invite" or "portal" in a public message, anyone will be allowed to invite you. Once you join a group, change zones, or after 5 minutes, invite blocking will return to normal.
      You can edit the words that trigger open invites, as well as what channels are watched, in the options.


    Type /decliner, /decline, or /dcl for the options.


    As a preemptive reply, since I've gotten this comment before, the only three options Blizzard has is "Block Trades", "Block Guild Invites", and "Block Chat Channel Invites" and they are all or nothing. Decliner, as described above, lets players through based on what options you set.

    I hope this addon is useful to many people. I use the curseforge ticket system for bugs, issues, and suggestions. I'll keep an eye on this thread as well and welcome any kind of reply, but to keep things organized, I would appreciate tickets.

    posted a message on Automatically deleting cache folder when WoW exits (Windows)
    Quote from Phanx
    I think you guys are seriously overcomplicating things. Just launch WoW from a batch file that deletes the cache first:

    %~d0
    CD %~dp0
    FOR /F "delims=\" %%G IN ("%~dp0") DO %%G
    FOR /F "tokens=*" %%G IN ("DIR /B /AD .\Cache\WDB") DO DEL /Q /F .\Cache\WDB\%%G\creaturecache.wdb
    START Wow-64.exe
    


    If you prefer to use the Battle.net launcher instead of logging into WoW directly, change the last line to:

    START "C:\Program Files (x86)\Battle.net\Battle.net Launcher.exe"
    


    I understand where you're coming from, but using this, I now have to have a shortcut to WoW. I use the bnet launcher completely, which is why I thought it was neat when I found out Task Scheduler can do things based on processes starting or exiting.

    Just to clarify why I posted this thread, I just needed a WoW forum using vbulletin in order to post this cache portion of the full post I linked on stormspire. Too lazy to reformat for another forum other than changing highlight colors. It's all bbcode, but didn't want to mess with it if something was off. When or if TUJ comes back or a replacement starts up, I have other code that will auto update my auction data when WoW starts, as well as two other batch files that sort all my chat log files and move any screenshots to another folder.

    posted a message on Automatically deleting cache folder when WoW exits (Windows)
    I appreciate the tips. I would like to point out that no console windows pop up for me though. Batch files don't show console windows when Task Manager runs them. As I stated in the beginning, I have a much more complicated setup for updating TUJ when WoW starts which consists of a vbs calling a ps1 which also calls a bat. This is because the ps1 can't be hidden without the vbs hiding it.

    As for Wowhead and WoWDB, this means that no delay is required and I can run this and my other scripts as soon as WoW exits?

    posted a message on Automatically deleting cache folder when WoW exits (Windows)
    Doing everything I explain below will automatically delete WoW's Cache folder every time you exit WoW for Windows 7 only. It may work for XP and/or 8, but I am unaware of any specific differences.

    NOTES
    • Everything in red may be different for you. Change accordingly.
    • Deleting the cache folder not only avoids any rare but possible issues WoW may have, but it is required for addons such as NPCscan in order to track creatures and NPCs properly.
    • This was originally part of a guide to auto-update The Undermine Journal data I posted on stormspire.net, but since TUJ has shut down, the guide was moved to a publicly inaccessible area and I wanted to show this specific cache part to a friend without them needing a stormspire account and without me changing all the vbulletin formatting, so here it is. I hope I can keep this post here and that other people benefit from it as well.

    1) Make a file in your main WoW directory named wowcache.bat.

    2) Right click that file, open with Notepad. If you have Notepad++, use that.

    a) Paste the following in the wowcache.bat file. Save and close.

    tasklist /nh /fi "imagename eq Wow.exe" | find /i /v "Wow.exe" >nul
    if errorlevel 1 goto:eof
    tasklist /nh /fi "imagename eq Wow-64.exe" | find /i /v "Wow-64.exe" >nul
    if errorlevel 1 goto:eof
    rd /q /s "[COLOR="#FF0000"]C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache[/COLOR]"


    Warning: Only set this Cache folder. Do not delete the one found in the Data folder.
    Note: RD is the part that deletes the Cache folder, everything before it checks if there's another game running before deleting. This is to prevent deleting if, say, you're RaFing yourself or are a multiboxer.

    3) Press Win+R, type "secpol.msc", and hit Enter.

    a) Click "Local Policies" on the left, then "Audit Policy", then double click "Audit process tracking".


    b) Check the "Success" block and click OK. Exit out of the Local Security Policy.


    4) Press Win+R, type "taskschd.msc", and hit Enter.

    a) Click "Create task..." on the right.


    b) Click the "Actions" tab, then the "New..." button on the bottom.


    c) Click "Browse...", navigate to your main WoW folder, and select the wowcache.bat file. Click OK.


    d) Click the "Triggers" tab, then the "New..." button on the bottom.


    e) Choose "On an event" in the top dropdown menu, click "Custom" on the left, then click "New Event Filter...".


    f) Click the "XML" tab, check the "Edit query manually" box on the bottom, then click "Yes" on the popup.

    Paste the following code into that box, then click OK and OK again.

    <QueryList>
      <Query Id="0" Path="Security">
        <Select Path="Security">*[System[(EventID=4689)]] and *[EventData[Data[@Name="ProcessName"]="C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Wow.exe" or Data[@Name="ProcessName"]="C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Wow-64.exe"]]</Select>
      </Query>
    </QueryList>

    g) There's no other required options, other than naming the task. My options are below.


    h) Click OK. You are done!

    Any insight as to when Smart Groups will come back, or do I have to manually put them back in by keeping my own copy of ChannelSticky.lua?
